Here are the best ways to show some love – or laugh through the pain – this V-Day with these great Valentine’s day events.
Friends of Single People
Here’s the chance to to represent your single friend live on stage in order to snag him/her a date. Put your friend up for auction and tell everyone why exactly they’re so great. Answer Jo Firestone’s (Punderdome 3000) questions as you believe your friend would, then wait for someone from the crowd to match up with your pal. Booze will do the rest.
Love Bites: Best Duets Ever
Sing along to beloved superhits like “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart,” “I Got You Babe” and “Suddenly.” Play the Cher to your own Sonny, accompanied by stars including Lena Hall and backed by the Love Bites band, with hosts Cathy Cervenka and Amber Martin.
First Comes Love
Comedian Kyle Ayers posed as an adult film producer on Craigslist in order to get people to write short screenplays. The overwhelming response led to Ayers acting the scenes out on stage verbatim with the help of fellow comedians and volunteer audience members. It will be a special blend of sexy and terrifying.
SPiN Heartbreak Hotel Party
SPiN is hosting a cheeky play on Valentine’s Day clichés by giving couples, singles and exes a chance to show off their competitive side and get physical if you, er, know what we mean. At the “Heartbreak Hotel,” there will be a range of interactive games and ping pong (duh), plus the haunt collaborated with The League app (a waitlist dating service) to create a VIP Lounge, where invites will be extended selectively. (Oh, how romantic.)
Cupid’s Unerwear-only Run
Join this scantily clad, one-mile Valentine’s Day dash to Brass Monkey bar to raise funds for the Children’s Tumor Foundation. Must register (and wear some form of undies) to participate.
Love Bites: The Power Ballads Sing-Along
If that long-haired artist in the Bon Jovi “Always” video taught us anything, it’s that love is fickle, and occasionally prone to arson. Valentine’s Day is a time for violence and misery and sing-alongs and wailing guitars, so sing the hits of Journey, Bryan Adams, Def Leppard, and other paragons of ’80s and ’90s power rock.
